Eh, I'm too preoccupied currently to continue posting this in the format I had intended. So I will just post the top 140 now (in super ugly format copy-pasted from my software). Maybe I will return to this later (in a month or so) and tidy it up and write some comments about the top 10.

^ Thanks for commenting! I'm OK, it isn't something bad this time (although I'm still not feeling 100% from the previous illness). :)

Well, English is not my first language so I'm not sure I used the word preoccupied correctly. But busy sounds like there are a lot of other things that I have to do so that I don't have time to make a lot of posts here. That is not the case at all. I do not have any work or family related stuff going on right now and if I wanted to I could spend three consecutive days doing nothing other than posting here... But I don't feel like doing that at the moment because there are at least two other things I would much rather spend my time doing. And I was already behind a lot which was demotivating in itself. I'm not going to leave UKmix completely though; I intend to continue posting my weekly chart, and in a month or two or three things could look very different again!

Thanks for sharing. I understand you completely (had a similar phase last October or so).
Do whatever you are enjoying the most and the charts updates and UKMiX is secondary, really!
Talk to you soon! :D

Let me Highlight some of my absolute faves...

Meghan Patrick's "Country Music Made Me Do It"... thanks a lot for that discovery!! I checked this song out when it was on your weekly chart and enjoyed it enough to write down the album release date and since then i'm really enjoying the whole release. It's definitely one of the best releases this year so far (Top10 on my Album-YTD list)

I only looked the chartrun for "Sanctuary" up a few days ago as i wondered how it did on your charts (because i didn't remember it anymore) and i was surprised it didn't do better. But the chartrun was probably better than i thought, or its plays were higher than expected, as #17 is a much better Year-End position than i expected. Due to the EP release the track grew a lot on me and now i'm enjoying it a lot, so nice it made your Top20.

"Schönster Moment" 'only' #30 though. Here i expected a better position, but it's still an awesome one. Especially after you didn't like Vanessa's first solo album, it was nice to see how you enjoyed "Regenbogen" much more and the same happened with me. "Schönster Moment" is still my most favorite song from her EVER (as a soloist, don't know much from her days with the band, apart from the singles and maybe "Der Zaubertrank ist leer" which was huge on your charts). I still hope it's a proper single at some point :oops:

"My Sweet Mystery" at #76 <3 <3 <3 8-)

"Fetish" in the Top100 :o Is this the first time ever for a Selena track to be in your Top100?

Obviously also love the support for Marina Kaye & Taylor Swift :D

With a couple of months gone by I'm not sure anymore it's just a phase and not a permanent change. But I'm not good at predicting stuff, even what I myself will be doing...

Not a bad choice! It was actually the song with the highest plays in a single week (505) during the year, ahead of "Clean Break" (462). (The #1 peaked at 254 plays, only the 9th biggest song in that respect.)

Blondini wrote:70 Wrenn On the Run Number 70 (131.5)

Yeah, great song, and a 100% one-hit-wonder for me so far; haven't heard anything else at all by her.

Tansike wrote:Time to see what i like/love in the Top140... i guess the score at the end of the songs are their points? So the #1 was VERY clear, as i expected 8-)
The numbers are the total number of plays during the year. Usually I truncate these to integers when I present stuff here (except in the weekly chart Archive thread) but my software counts fractional plays if I listen to between 0.30 and 1.50 of a song (i.e. below 30 seconds doesn't count at all and above 110 seconds counts as a full play). Yup, very clear #1, and it was even more clear before "Clean Break" showed up in October.

Tansike wrote:Let me Highlight some of my absolute faves...
Great that you like so many songs (many more than I did on your YEC :oops:), and especially the #1 which I didn't remember you commenting on before.

Great to hear this! Even though for me the album didn't really live up to my expectations. Meghan is sort of a "two-hit-wonder" for me now, not that I don't like more songs by her but there are two ("Breaking Records" and the new title track) way ahead of the rest in total plays.

It was a very strong #3, with two weeks above 100 plays which very rarely happens for a non-#1. I.e. the song got unlucky on my weekly chart with very strong competition (as seen from the YEC chart positions of the songs that were higher week 47-50).

Sort of the opposite effect here, competition was relatively weak when that song was released. It did get one week above 100 plays though (but only 28 its second best week). Just to make the top 30 on my YEC usually mean I like the song a lot though, and although 2017 was weaker than the years just before further down on the chart, the top 30 was still strong.

Tansike wrote:"Fetish" in the Top100 :o Is this the first time ever for a Selena track to be in your Top100?
No! Not even close! :lol: You must have forgotten about "Cologne" that was #1 on my weekly chart after the album release in 2015; that one ended up at #20 on my YEC that year, and also did well the year after and should have a good shot at making the top 100 on the decade chart! And that's not even her highest YEC position. "Outlaw" was as high as #12 in 2011 (although competition was much weaker that year). Even "Good for You" was #26 in 2015. And in 2013 "Slow Down" was #64 and "Love Will Remember" #93. ("Sober" and "Me & the Rhytm" missed the top 100, but only because 2015 was such a strong year.)

To conclude this mess of a thread, I thought I would also list my top 10 new albums (full length only) during the year and the top 10 most played artists.

Top 10 Albums of 2017 (full-length only)

1. Lauren Alaina – Road Less Traveled (Score: 978 / Song plays in 2017: 1,411)
 2. Taylor Swift – Reputation (969 / 1,323)
 3. RaeLynn – Wildhorse (669 / 889)
 4. Alee – Bad Habit (583 / 986)
 5. Alma – Ma peau aime (344 / 1,073)
 6. Lea Michele – Places (323 / 466)
 7. All Time Low – Last Young Renegade (304 / 714)
 8. Michelle Branch – Hopeless Romantic (270 / 528)
 9. Madeline Juno – DNA (266 / 404)
10. Emma Stevens – To My Roots (265 / 665)

Lauren Alaina narrowly takes the #1 spot ahead of Taylor Swift, despite having somg "old" songs on her album that didn't get too many plays this year. The albums are ranked according to total plays multiplied by the "breadth factor", the same way as last year and similar to for my weekly albums chart.

Top 10 Artists in 2017

1. Beatrice Egli (3,601 plays)
 2. Maia (2,855)
 3. Kate Todd (1,865)
 4. Taylor Swift (1,683)
 5. Emmelie de Forest (1,530)
 6. Lauren Alaina (1,466)
 7. Catherine McGrath (1,448)
 8. Alyssa Micaela (1,333)
 9. Echosmith (1,294)
10. Chelsea Lankes (1,271)

With a huge number of songs versus only a handful for the #2, Swiss schlager singer Beatrice Egli became the most played artist in 2017. And as things currently stand, it looks very possible that she will repeat this in 2018!
